The need for a different approach to IT has become ever more pressing as business and technology have dramatically accelerated. Hybrid IT is proving to be more economical and more flexible, whilst also supporting a seamless evolution in a rapidly-changing world and makes more sense than any other approach.

 

The traditional ‘5-year refresh’ is a thing of the past, companies of all sizes are looking to IT to be more flexible, to provide a flexible and scalable experience at a lower cost than ever before.

 

Rapid change can make what was a leading edge environment pretty much obsolete in a short amount of time, placing the entire business at a severe competitive disadvantage. This requires a mindset change from everyone involved in the process, including the financing of the equipment and services. Moving from a CAPEX to OPEX model is becoming ever-more important, talking to customers about buying-back old kit, flexible financing models, asset disposal and generally making more of a budget that seems to be shrinking every time the business blinks is paramount.

“TO SURVIVE AND THRIVE, TODAY’S COMPANIES REALISE THAT COST, AGILITY AND INNOVATION MUST BE THE MOST IMPORTANT FACTORS AS THEY CREATE THEIR IT STRATEGY.”

 

Today, a hybrid approach that offers the right mix of public cloud, private cloud and traditional IT has emerged as the ideal solution by offering:

•   Protection of sensitive data

•   Secure solutions that prevent malware and data breaches

•   Regulatory compliance and data sovereignity

•   Greater visibility and control of costs

•   Increased performance and lower costs

•   Greater control of the application ecosystem and better management of data

 

Ensure you get the right mix by looking to HPE and Ingram Micro to support you and your customers on your Hybrid IT needs.
